PQB grads can display signs on their lawns

‘2020 Graduate Lives Here’

With Graduation 2020 looking much different than senior students imagined, alternatives are popping up.

In the Parksville Qualicum Beach area, grads can now request special signs to put on their front lawns acknowledging their accomplishments. They read ‘2020 Graduate Lives Here’.

Coombs Signs & Print and Setter and Associates of ReMax First Realty came together to make it happen – you can email Info@SetterAndAssociates.com to set it up.

The signs are also part of a contest. Grads can win one of four $50 gift cards if they take a picture of them with the sign and tag both Coombs Signs & Print and Setter and Associates of ReMax First Realty on Facebook or Instagram.
